2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I find the G.V. lots of fun to drive, but
consumes a bit too much gas! Having
changed form a Toyota Camry V6LE to this
vehicle, I find it rattles & squeaks and can be
annoying at times. Overall, I rate the quality
between 7 & 8 on a scale of 10. By the way,
the hood latch is responsible for an
intermittent squeak, may have to be adjusted
more than once... Tends to spin in rain &
snow in 2wd but handles well in 4wd.
Shift on the fly, no doubt about this!
Better speakers. Less annoying squeaks.
Dash lights take too much time to light up at
night. Could have better windshield wipers.
Key hole hard to find at night, light it up!
